ok so my pics are too big for craftster photo hosting  Angry...does anyone know how to fix that so that I can show u all the beauty that is the Mug Rug I recived Undecided

if you have a flickr account you can upload them there and then post them here. Otherwise you probably just need to resize them. (Sadly I don't know how to do that without photoshop or something like it!)

Easy to do on a PC: (1) Right click on the picture file; (2) mouse over "Open With"; (3) from the menu that opens choose "Paint" (a program that comes with PCs and in which you can resize your picture).

(4a) Using Windows XP you click on Image, choose "Stretch/Skew" and in the Stretch section change the percentages for horizontal and vertical (be sure to use the same number for both); leave the Skew section as is.

(4b) Using Windows 2010 you can find a resize option on the "ribbon" at the top; change the percentage for either horizontal or vertical and the other will change automatically.

I've never used Vista or Windows 7 so can't offer any personal experience with either of those operating systems, but from what I've been able to find online, it looks like Vista will be similar to 4a ("Windows Vistas version of Paint will allow you to resize a picture file by clicking Image, Resize/Skew, and then telling Paint by what percent youd like to shrink the file"), while W7 is closer to 4b ("On the Home tab, in the Image group, click Resize").

Finally, be sure to save your newly shrunk picture with a new name (Save As) so you don't lose your original photograph.

I think you might even be able to resize in windows photo gallery. I know you can do basic editing in there. (like contrast and cropping) so I'm sure you might even be able to resize in there! I hope that helps! We can't wait to see what you received!!!

Also, open a free account on Photobucket. Upload your pictures. They provide the IMG links to be able to show your pictures. That is is easiest way.

Brilliant idea putting it on your counter in front of your coffee pot! I'm so doing that with my next one!
Also love the fabric choices!
